    Amazing show, raising many taboo and unspoken topics in a fine cinematography. Would love to see more shows of this calibre being lauched

    The first season of Tig Notaro's semi-autopbiographical dark comedy is largely successful, and mostly regarding how it so deftly balances its joy and misery. Drawing from Notaro's own experience (which has been a driving force in her deadpan standup), One Mississippi brings up dark subject matter for sure, from child molestation to cancer. Still, it's fully endearing, with Notaro always being an immense pleasure to watch, even at her most droll, and the tone of the show works wonders with her demeanor. Some of the humorous dream sequences feel a bit out of place (the show is strongest when it feels most natural), and the writing isn't as inventive as some other post-Louie comedies, but it's a very efficient first season that succeeds at being sublimely personal.

    Even though Tig Notaro breaks every darn rule in "The Handbook for Creating Comedy TV" with her Amazon series "One Missippippi," I am shamelessly in love with it. I normally avoid shows that are potentially depressing. And if there was ever a series that promised bleakness, “One Mississippi” is it. Like Asiz Ansari’s “Master of None,” and Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “One Mississippi” is semi-autobiographical. But unlike "Curb" and "Master," the pain of Tig's main character is all too real, resulting in the laughs not being as important here as with most comedies. Some examples: 1. Tig's character is a lesbian who perpetually chooses the worst partner. 2. She is a cancer survivor who endured a double mastectomy and then decided against reconstructive surgery. 3. She is also a victim of a serious ailment known as c. diff. colitis which forces her to constantly be on the lookout for the nearest toilet. 4. Her mother dies unexpectedly in an accidental fall at home. 5. Her stepfather is a fastidious pain-in-the-rear who quickly loses all patience when things don’t go perfectly his way. 6. Her adult brother is a teddy bear of a boy-man who still lives at home in a room that he never finishes remodeling. He is also a weekend Civil War reenactor whose ragtag unit proudly dresses in Union uniforms, even though they all live in Mississippi. 7. The show gradually reveals that the Tig character was sexually molested as a youth for an extended period by a family member who did not live in the home. Does the above sound like a downer? You bet. But after seeing Tig Notaro for the first time on Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight” show, I fell hard for her standup style. On the strength of that one TV appearance, I gave her series a whirl. I am glad I did. Yes, the situations may seem depressing at first, but “One Mississippi” manages to honestly deal with life’s cruel inequities while taking the attitude that this only life we have is well worth living to the fullest, despite the fact that while many of us live in endless sunshine, others – for no good reason – have all manner of hardship rain down on us. While there are not many fall-down-laughing moments in “One Mississippi” there are many scenes where out of nowhere the story giddily launches into a fantastic absurdist jag before jerking us back to reality. I’ve never before seen the likes of "One Mississippi," so I am happy there will be at least one more season. The series deserves it. Tig deserves it. And her loyal audience deserves it.

    It's everything--brave and funny and sad and weird. I could watch it for twenty seasons, that's how in love with these characters I am.
  • Sep 24, 2016
    Beautifully written and thoughtfully executed.

    A relief to watch an honest show with real emotion and humor. The six episode season set up the show well, wrapped up nicely, yet left me wanting more. Looking forward to more seasons.

    One Mississippi is dark, honest, poignantly humorous and warm. It is thoroughly well done at every level, the concept, composition, acting, filming and editing and the 25 minute lenght is perfect. At first, for some, it may seem darkly unsettling but the story is knit together has offers a revealing and reinforcing life message in the final 5 minutes. Give it a chance; watch the full first episode and you begin to care about all the characters inspite of or because of the mismash way each interacts. Wish season 2 was already here.

    One Mississippi is one of the most brutally honest and realistic shows amazon has done focusing on change and acceptance and is completely anchored by it's lead performance of Tig Notaro who if you haven't heard of before you will after this who gives maybe one of the most nuanced and subtle performances of the year that may be partially based on her real life. It also contains a fantastic story that while not exactly original finds a way to stand out and shines through dream sequences and flashbacks that never feel too gimmicky and is benefited from it's much shorter length of episodes than most that ends up being one of the best things you'll likely see this fall season and this year in general. Grade for the Season: A
